Kao Jai Coffee (pronounced cow j+eye) is a specialty, single-origin coffee harvested on a single farm in the mountains of Northern Thailand. Our unique, specialty coffee beans have been carefully grown, harvested, and processed in the Chiang Rai province near the Myanmar/Laos border. Our story began in late 2013 when two co-founders were teaching at a boarding school in the city of Chiang Rai and were given the opportunity to harvest coffee alongside farmers in a nearby village. Being able to see the community, work with the farmers, and understand the process inspired the founders to find a way to better connect coffee farmers in Thailand with coffee lovers like you.
Kao Jai, a phrase in Thai meaning “to understand,” someone or something. It means that someone is completely knowledgeable and sympathetic to others unique stories. When you experience something first hand, it opens your eyes and heart to not only knowing others but understanding them. Kao Jai Coffee was founded to create different opportunities for people to transition from knowing to understanding.
Still my favorite. Everything I wrote 3 years ago (see my 5/30/2020 comment) is still true.
This is some of the best coffee ever. I purchase whole bean, grind at home, and make wonderful espressos with it.
Cupping notes are chocolate and honey, I got this in a medium roast and I absolutely loved it. My all Time favorite coffee. Coffee is smooth not acidic, roasted just right.
I love this coffee. It comes through with multiple thoughts of coffee plantations. Recently made a late evening cup and wandered off to another task leaving the cup overnight. The following morning , I drank the Kao Jai cold; what a great flavor! Now I make a cup and leave it for my first morning espresso.
